Achieving high open-circuit voltage (Voc) for tin-based perovskite solar cells is challenging. Here, we demonstrate that a ZnS interfacial layer can improve the Voc and photovoltaic performance of formamidinium tin iodide (FASnI3) perovskite solar cells. The TiO2-ZnS electron transporting layer (ETL) with cascade conduction band structure can effectively reduce the interfacial charge recombination and facilitate electron transfer. Our best-performing FASnI3 perovskite solar cell using the cascaded TiO2-ZnS ETL has achieved a power conversion efficiency of 5.27%, with a higher Voc of 0.380 V, a short-circuit current density of 23.09 mA cm-2, and a fill factor of 60.01%. The cascade structure is further validated with a TiO2-CdS ETL. Our results suggest a new approach for further improving the performance of tin-based perovskite solar cells with a higher Voc.
